As a shopping editor, I always have an ear to the ground for the coolest, smartest, most need-to-know our editors’ radars straight to your very own space.

Not sure where to shop, or just need some quick inspo? Start here with a weekly rundown of AT editors’ favorite finds, from things we’ve tested, to exciting brand launches, to home project kickstarters. Read on to see what’s got our team buzzing this week.

“I’m really into fake cakes, and this has been on my Etsy wishlist for some time — it’s actually a jewelry box. It probably can’t fit too much jewelry, but it’s more of a cute thing.” —Noella Williams, assistant news & culture editor

The Novogratz

“This Novogratz dresser instantly steals the show in our guest bedroom, and it features an abundance of quality drawer space without taking up much space at all. The open geometric frame base makes it appear as though it’s floating in place. I just love it when storage and style collide at a price point I can live with, and this, my friends, is that moment. The classic neutral tones and flashy brass accents make a stylish pair, and it can seamlessly blend in with modern, boho or more traditional décor aesthetic.” —Charli Penn, executive lifestyle director

Pottery Barn

“I am doing my best to stay on budget as I furnish my new apartment, but once I saw this pillow at Pottery Barn, I had to splurge — my best friend also told me to ‘treat myself,’ as she often does! It is such a pretty pattern in person: verdant and floral with just enough personality to work with the rest of the pillows on my couch. I have a feeling I'm going to have this pillow for years to come, so the investment was worth it.” —Kelly Dawson, deputy editor

Burrow's Index bookshelf is such an underrated product from the DTC furniture brand, and this is saying a lot from someone who has four Burrow items (and counting!). Like its couches, the Index bookshelf is modular and easy to assemble, so you can add more shelves if you need. In addition to books (of course), I style the shelves with souvenirs and trinkets that bring a smile to my face every time I pass by.” —Jada Wong, shopping director

“I have a junk drawer in a room outside my kitchen, so I didn’t have a good place for pens and scissors in my kitchen. I saw this vase from Target and it’s the perfect size. It’s also only $12, but looks a lot nicer.” —Alison Goldman, special projects director

Rifle Paper Co.

Rifle Paper Co. just launched this peacock mural paper and I think it’s so beautiful. I’m a big fan of their patterns — I have a rug, notebooks, calendars, planners, and more from them — but have never tried their wallpaper. I love that this has their trademark whimsy, but the green in particular has such a rich color palette that it looks super sophisticated. Imagine this in a living room or a reading nook! Just gorgeous.” —Megan Baker Detloff, home projects director

“MacKenzie-Childs just launched their Wildflower collection on March 6, and it's the cottagecore assortment of my dreams. These 47 new products all feature pastel-forward, hand-painted flower designs, and many of them can be used either indoors or outside. I'm especially loving the little galvanized herb pot set, which would make a great spring gift.” —Danielle Blundell, executive home director

“I have some people coming at the end of the month, and nowhere for them to sit. I already have two of these IKEA stools and wanted to get two more — I really like them!” —Sarah Everett, staff writer
